I just did a quick test for 2.0.7 on a system with debian sarge for
dom0/domU, and
(following our notes from 2.0.6
http://www.option-c.com/xwiki/Xen_CDROM_Support) exporting a cd-rom to
a domU seems to work as well as it did in 2.0.6.

However, that information may not be much help for fedora core users...
